Aluminium Mosquito Wire Mesh

Aluminium is largely considered the most popular non-ferrous metal in the world, and as such, aluminium alloys are commonly used in the wire mesh industry. Aluminium alloys are composed primarily of aluminium, and also contain other elements like copper, magnesium, manganese, or silicon.
Aluminium woven wire mesh is lightweight; in fact, a good rule of thumb is that, when compared to its stainless steel counterpart, aluminium mesh is approximately 1/3rd the weight of stainless. Aluminium wire mesh is also corrosion resistant in most normal environments, aluminium has many benefits, including a relatively low cost compared to other meshes. Aluminium woven wire mesh is a popular choice for a wide array of industries including aerospace and automotive, as well as marine and electrical conductivity applications.
As a large supplier of aluminium alloy wire, ISINOX specializes in stocking many of the standard or market grades. As indicated in the chart below, the 5000 series of aluminium contain magnesium which is the main secondary element. This inclusion of magnesium serves as a hardener and offers good corrosion resistance in marine atmospheres.

Aluminium Wire Mesh

Aluminium Wire Mesh is a shiny, soft, but durable alloy. The lustre of Aluminium resembles Stainless Steel but is less expensive. It is lighter than other alloys, such as Stainless Steel, Steel, Copper, and Brass. Aluminium wire mesh is suitable for many applications
because it is corrosion resistant to atmospheric and marine atmospheres, nontoxic, has electrical conductivity, scratch resistance, durable, it can withstand very low temperatures, and is easy to fabricate with. Aluminium wire mesh can be woven with very large
openings and heavier wire diameters for many usages such as architectural applications and infill panels. Aluminium wire mesh can also be woven as a fine mesh which is very bright and has many usages; filtration, aerospace, automotive, window screens,
insect screens; and many more. Aluminium can also be powder coated for aesthetic application or durability. It is the most perfect alloy for so many applications.
